Wild Boar Dry Cured Ham, umsmoked (available for collection/delivery from 15th December only)

Regular price $129.00

Unit price per 

Select size

only 2 left in stock

This hams are made from free range pure wild boar or free range wild boar crossed with free range Tamworth pigs . This breed is called 'Iron Age Pigs' as they are thought to resemble the pigs farmed by Iron Age farmers and shown in cave paintings.  The flavour is intense and more gamey than our Free Range Tamworth hams.  Please note the rind of the wild boar ham shows the dark hair of the wild boar - this causes no problem as during the cooking process after poaching the skin should be removed and discarded, just leaving the fat layer should then be finished with a glaze (e.g. honey & mustard) and then popped in a hot oven for 5 - 10 minutes or so to melt the glaze. 

Allergens shown in bold. Free range pork, salt, sugar,

preservative sodium nitrite, preservative sodium nitrate, antioxidant ascorbic acid.

All our minces, sausages, livers, steaks, chicken pieces, chickens, casserole cubes, stir-fry strips and bacon are now packed in plastic-free, home compostable biodegradable and ocean friendly vacuum pack bags. (Larger roasts and hams are still packed in recyclable vacuum pack bags until we use up packaging stocks).

          Delivery Charges

          Delivery charges are calculated at the checkout  and the amount charged depends on the size of your order and your postcode. There is a minimum order value of £75 for Parcelforce delivery, and if your order is below the minimum amount the delivery options will not display.  You must input your postcode with a space between the first 4 digits and the last 3 digits e. g. BT30 9BL (not BT309BL) so the checkout software can read your postcode and calculate the delivery charge to the delivery address. If you input a postcode without spaces e.g. BT309BL the checkout software will not read the numbers as a postcode, so no delivery options will be displayed to you at the checkout. 

          Here is a general guide  - based on average portions.

           

          Ham, raw. Order 8 oz (225 g) per portion. This will give you 4 oz (110 g) of cooked ham per portion. Ham loses approximately 1/3 to 1/2 its weight in the boiling process, so if you need 2 kg of cooked meat, you should order 4 kg of raw ham.

          Meat on the bone (e.g. Rib Roast) - allow 1 lb (450 g) per portion.

          Meat, boned (e.g. Rump roast/Topside Roast/Boned Pork Loin) - allow 8 ounces (225 g) per portion.

          Meat boned for casserole (e.g. venison casserole pieces) allow 4 oz (110 g) for a casserole with equal vegetable ingredients e.g. mushrooms, onions, carrots. If the casserole meat is just poached in wine without any additional vegetables allow 8 oz (225 g) per portion.

          We cut  meat as accurately as possible, but as this is a natural product the weight of the product supplied may vary slightly from the weight ordered. It is impossible for the butcher to be absolutely precise when cutting meat.  

          As hams are a natural product produced from the back leg of individual pigs they vary in size depending on the size and weight of each individual pig.  So naturally when we cut a ham in half, the size of each half ham will not be identical.  Our hams are priced in weight bands with an upper and lower weight range of approximately 500 grams per band, for a fixed price per weight range. We will supply you with a ham that falls in the weight band you paid for, but we cannot supply a specific precise weight. 

          STORAGE OF YOUR MEAT

          Your order may contain both chilled and frozen items.  

          FROZEN ITEMS

          Frozen items are marked with a ‚ÄėBest Before‚Äô date of 365 days from the date of packing. Please ensure you put frozen items in your freezer¬†immediately¬†your package is delivered, and store them frozen until you are ready to cook them.¬†Do not leave chilled items in the refrigerator until the last day of their shelf life, then decide to freeze them as they will have no shelf life left.¬† Once thawed or defrosted previously frozen items have a ‚ÄėUse By‚Äô date of 12 hours and must be cooked within 12 hours. Do not leave previously frozen items in a¬†refrigerator for several days after thawing ‚Äď they will not be safe to eat and should be discarded.¬†Previously frozen items can be cooked and then refrozen for example, frozen mince can be defrosted, cooked and then frozen as e.g. Shepherds‚Äô Pie or Bolognese Sauce.

          CHILLED ITEMS

          Chilled items are marked with a ‚ÄėUse By‚Äô date of several days (the length of which varies depending on the type of product ‚Äď minced items with no preservative have a 2 day shelf life, fresh chicken has a 3 day shelf life, sausages or burgers containing preservatives have a 5 day shelf life in an unopened vacuum pack, beef steaks have a 14 day shelf life in an unopened vacuum pack, bacon has a 14 day shelf life in an unopened vacuum pack, but 4 days shelf life only once the pack is open.¬† Chilled¬†meat and poultry should be stored in a refrigerator set to the lowest setting (2 degrees Centigrade) and should be cooked before the ‚ÄėUse By‚Äô date on the pack. Once cooked chilled items can be frozen and stored in a freezer.¬† Chilled items can also be frozen in an uncooked state if they are put in your freezer immediately you receive them.
